Re: Broken muffler bolt.

That's an excellent point Gary!! I think you should spend $100 and get a Giant Scale Racer and come racing with us at 240mph!!

Re: Phoenix Races 2018

To those who are following this post and plan on racing at Phoenix. My personal suggestion is to follow the instructions on the flyer and mail a check to Jim Allen. He keeps track of everyone who is on the list by postmark, and he will email you a confirmation. This is the only way you will be on t...

Re: 2018 US Nationals

I'm pretty sure you are not going to move the NATS forward, and I'm also pretty sure the attendance would not be good for the Champ race in Denver in November. Brrrrrrr......

Re: 2018 WEST COAST SERIES CALENDAR OF RACES

Over the last several years, I have included EF1 at the Basin Race. I received emails promising if I included it, they would come. I have 3 years worth of EF1 trophies in boxes, but what I failed to get was a single entry to show up at the race. Get me 9 people that commit to racing the class and I ...

Re: Question, and only a question!

I will agree with race horse starts when the following 3 things come true: 1. The 2nd flag planes are losing the majority of their heat races by less than the clock difference of the 1st flag. 2. 98% of the pilots can take off straight in all wind conditions. 3. All volunteers at pylon 1 and lap cou...

Re: Q40 landing techniques (to avoid landing into other planes)

What a good question. 1. The caller needs to be communication with his/her pilot on landings, not arguing with the starter or checking flight stats. 2. Good communication is needed between pilots when everyone is coming in together. 3. Make sure you have good rudder authority on your plane. Sometime...

Re: Your latest creation

My latest Q40 for those who aren't on FB. Everything starts with a thought, mine was to fix the yellow that was a little transparent, then I lost my mind.

Re: Basin Results

Another Basin race in the books and the return of 4 plane heat races on Saturday!!! Pretty much a smooth weekend and just 1 re-fly. I want to thank all the pilots for coming to the competition and the Valley Flyers for hosting the event. I had good support from the club and that made it easier for m...

Re: Electronic Stability Systems

Well said Lee, totally agree. After talking to Travis about this weekend, some heats it was off, some it was on(on means rudder). Both Randy and Travis are among the very best of the pilots we have in the US(neither of which can benefit from gyro assistance) and I think we should give them a bit of ...
